this week we began listening to the tracks from framework radio's new fundraising release, framework:seasonal issue #4, spring 2013. we're very excited about this release, which will become officially available (although we're taking preorders now) this thursday, march 20th, the (finally!) first day or spring! you wouldn't know it in estonia though, where it's still hitting -20C some nights and everything is still white. but we look to the future! and in your future, at least for the next few shows, will be some blatant begging: with this new release we enter framework's occasional official fundraising mode so listen up:
framework is a lot of work, and we love doing it. but we can't do it without paying the rent, and we need you, dear listener, to help with that. we don't expect you to do it for nothing though (ignoring for the moment the hours and hours of great radio you get already), which is why we started the framework:seasonal series. there are 4 great releases to be had in the series now, and the funds that come in from them make framework possible. please, if you enjoy the program, if you listen to it even occasionally, if you would simply prefer to see it keep going than to see it go away, make a contribution. you can make a one-time donation (20€ or more to get a copy of framework:seasonal!) or commit to a regular monthly contribution (5€ or more per month gets you each new issue as they are released!). you can commit to as little as 1€ per month - think about it. that's practically nothing. but if every regular framework listener would sign up to contribute just 1€ per month i would never have to run another fundraiser again.
so go to the framework website, make a one-time or regular monthly contribution, whatever you can afford, and show us you care.
so this week great tracks from the latest issue by jay-dea lopez, france jobin, and flavien gillié. also work by luca nasciuti, simon whetham, and frédéric nogray, and an intro recorded by regular framework contributor and supporter joe stevens.
again, we are always looking for new material, whether raw field recordings, field recording based composition, or introduction submissions. we are also now accepting proposals for full editions of our guest curated framework:afield series. send proposals or material, released or not, on any format, to the address at the bottom of this mail. if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
